a week of NOWS ~ #33

My word for 2018 is focus, which requires paying attention to the moment – the now. So, this year, I’ll be taking note of experiences I may have missed, without focus. Many may seem to be BGO’s (blinding glimpses of the obvious), but hey, I might have missed them.

Here’s this week of NOWS:

the new crop of zinnias preparing to bloom;

finally figuring out how to use steel cut oats in a smoothie;

a fabulous book club discussion about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn;

that I don’t need to worry about running out of deep-cleaning or home improvement projects to avoid unpacking Mom boxes;

a family of ducks arriving at The Perfect Moment;

reconnecting/connecting with not just one, but two cousins from the English side of my family;

how addictive the Ancestry DNA site can be;

celebrating the voice that will always be Aretha;

the power of prayer, in its many forms;

how much joy avacado slices add to a sandwich; and

learning that not all butterflies have symmetrical wing designs.

What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
